“Once you stop learning you start dying”
― Albert Einstein
I couldn’t agree more with the above statement. You have to understand that time changes and what works now may not work tomorrow. Therefore, as times changes you also have to learn new steps or upgrade what you already know. You, your business and bank account start dying and perishing when you stop learning.
What effect will a candle like have on one corner of a dark eighty thousand (80,000) capacity stadium if I may ask. Of course, it will make you aware of; what is an inch or more ahead of where you are standing is. But what effect will it have in the full stadium? No effect. To brighten that stadium and light it up you need a floodlight not a candle.
What effect will what you have always known have on the billion dollar company or business you want to create? What effect will it have on your bank account? Absolutely little or no effect. Probably it may help you survive and live from hand-to-mouth. But if you want to change your bank account and financial life, you have to change and upgrade what you know.
Imagine going to war with an old rusted weapon. Let me ask you; “will you win that war if your opponent is using a modern-day weapon? You may be more skillful in fighting, stronger and more talented than your opponent, but what is a cutlass compared to an AK47? What is a Nokia 3310 compare to an iPhone. If you want to dominate your market and create wealth, you continue improving and continues improvement requires continues learning.
You will agree with me that the Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, etc. Of 2005 are not the same as the one you see today. The improvement and change are huge. It is so because they learn and improve on a daily basis.
If you want to acquire wealth and create lasting financial abundance, don’t stop learning.
